Ultrasonography shows hypoechoic sol in right lobe of liver due to focal fat sparing, advised MRI. Should I get it done?

Hi I had got ultrasonography done as part of health checkup. The report mentions hypoechoic sol in right lobe of liver probably due to focal fat sparing. Suggested MRI for confirmation I m 29 years old and would like to understand what this hypoechoic sol in right lobe of liver is and its implications. Do I really need to get MRI done ? thanks, weight 70 Kg height 167cm

There is no need for a MRI. You should get a contrast enhanced CT done(double contrast IV and oral) which will reveal the true state of affairs. Once that confirms the benign characteristics of the lesion then you need not worry at all.
